New Home

 Hello Everyone,

Well l had a great weekend with my Grand daughter Tayla as her mum and dad were busy painting and decorating the new house which they hope to be moving into shortly, Tayla is our 1st grandchild and she is such a pleasure to be around, she brings a lot of love into our lives, the card above is being entered in   makeitmonday  which is anything goes!
so l made this lovely card for my son Shane and his wife Paula who are at this moment working so hard on the new house, the image is from Crafters Companion CD and its one of the projects which l didn't know l had until l decided to check the CD out as it's an old CD but has lots of images to chose from.
l hope you like what you see and if so please will you leave your comments l appreciate any comments left and read them all. 
Many thanks for stopping by   .........Sandra H :)
